Understanding of the World
We would like you and your child, to focus on completing the following activities related to technology around your home . . .
Look at the Hansel and Gretel story PowerPoint.
Identify objects and compare them with our modern day equivalents. e.g. Look at the oven where the witch is going to cook Hansel. Is it like your oven?
Look at and compare baby and toddler books and children’s books.
What is different about them?
Why are they different? (Think particularly about the materials they are made from)
Why not take this opportunity to discuss the properties of different materials whilst helping your child to build a bridge for the three billy goats gruff?
Use the supporting bridge posters to help with your discussions
Week 5: UW
Can you build a raft to help the three billy goats get to the meadow on the other side?
Take this opportunity to discuss materials.
Why not grow some grass for the hungry billy goats?
Discuss how plants grow and why?
